  1. If she was my sister, and I caught the stinking rat, smashed his face in with a baseball bat until his face was a permanently unrecognisable mess, then proceeded on to do the same thing to her ex-boyfriend (who honestly, has no excuse for spitting in her face – he’s a coward plain and simple), it would all be okay, because they deserved it, according to society in general and the ex-boyfriends logic….

  2. hahaha You guys just won’t admit the fact that “men” of middle eastern and african lineage are over represented in the statistics pertainng to sex crimes in Australia,, when confronted with these statistical facts,, which are inarguable and beyond mathmatical dispute, although in your far left brain wshed ignorance you will argue them anyway,once again expose yourself to the non brainwashed as an unwitting communist shrill.
    “the “cultural enhancement Brigade assure us that it’s the White Australian Ladies fault in some way,,, maybe they should COVER UP THAT MEAT,,,,,,

    And Max Riethmuller ,, the day will come when If you choose you can mete out that justice you describe, legally,, one thing we and the muslims agree on is “an eye for an eye” so whichever way “this” goes,,, you’ll get that at the end if nothing else

    • Perhaps sex crimes can be attributed with ethnicity, but then will you look at the socio-economic disadvantage experienced by these two ethnic groups as a result of institutionalised racism?

      Nah, easier to say that ‘Muslims’ rape people more.

      Men are the real problem, not people from specific racial/religious backgrounds. Men.

    • ‘hahaha You guys just won’t admit the fact that “men” of middle eastern and african lineage are over represented in the statistics pertainng to sex crimes in Australia’

      i think i speak for everyone here when i say we DO admit it.

      ‘ when confronted with these statistical facts,, which are inarguable and beyond mathmatical dispute’

      yep.

      ‘although in your far left brain wshed ignorance you will argue them anyway,once again expose yourself to the non brainwashed as an unwitting communist shrill.’

      nope. we take into account socioeconomic backgrounds too. and wtf is a shrill? did you mean ‘shrew’?

      ‘“the “cultural enhancement Brigade assure us that it’s the White Australian Ladies fault in some way,,, maybe they should COVER UP THAT MEAT,,,,,,’

      notice the cavalcade of comments which say otherwise. and notice that we do not condone rape in any form.

      ‘And Max Riethmuller ,, the day will come when If you choose you can mete out that justice you describe, legally’

      that isn’t justice as described by our judicial system. as someone so keen on protecting democracy and the western way of life from the muslamic hordes, you seem equally keen on dispensing the brand of ‘justice’ you so abhor when you feel like it.

      ‘one thing we and the muslims agree on is “an eye for an eye” so whichever way “this” goes,,, you’ll get that at the end if nothing else’

      all muslims? really?

    • @Billy, I don’t actually wish to be the judge jury and executioner, that’s why we have a legal system. Women who wear revealing clothing, drink and flirt have nothing to answer for. It’s solely and entirely the perpetuator of violence whose actions need be accounted for.

      And I think you’ll find that regardless of the statistical ratios, there are more than enough White Australian Men who are perpetuators of sexual violence. That said, you are wrong even in your basic premise. Men don’t rape women because of the way they dress. This has been studied to death and it is well established that rape is a crime of violence not a rape of desire. When a rapist claims he was enticed to rape a women because of her clothing or behaviour, he is using this as a poor excuse to cover up for his own retarded and violent tendencies. Grandmas get raped too, and not because they were wearing a mini-skirt. Rape is a crime of domination, and statistically there is no difference in the likelyhood of a woman being raped while wearing revealing clothing than there is for a woman wearing non-revealing clothing.

      I’m not quite sure who you imagine the cultural enhancement brigade to be, but left wing ideologies are generally aligned with the idea that woman ARE NOT TO BLAME for rape. It’s the far right and their religious tainted paranoia and self-righteousness that blames women for rape. So get your socio-economic facts straight.

    • billy hill/hillbilly, you make a lot of unsubstantiated generalisations about the readership of this blog. You also make reference to ‘statistical facts’. How about you do something constructive and provide some Australian statistics supporting your claims starting with rapes broken down by ethnicity and socio-economic factors.

  3. and should you decide to not allow these comments as you usually do, I have screen shot so either way your exposure is assured.

  4. This isn’t a discussion on bringing up race. Its a discussion on how men are mostly excused of raping women. Of all cultures hence the slutwalk was created.

    But trust someone to turn this into a bigot rambling without any facts or statistics on the claims he makes that are happening in his country.

  5. Put it this way guys,, keep a close eye on 3 Victorian towns,,, Shepparton, Robinvale and Swan Hill, over the next month or two. Then, tell me that multi-culturalism doesn’t generate a general break-down in society,, and subsequent violence. Fair,, we’ll call it a ” field test”

    Anyway I’m a fat neo-Nazi retard incapable of anything other than Google searching ‘I hate Muslims’…

    • The same arguments were being used when the Irish came (remember Eureka Stockade; to the White Anglo Saxon agricultural settlers who’d been here for a generation or two, the miners were “violent immigrants”), when the Italians came after WWII, the Greeks, and in the 80’s the Asians were apparently taking our Jobs. However Australian culture survived, and continues to survive despite your parochial view and complete failure to understand exactly what Australian culture is and the history that has brought our way of life into being.

      Your views, while no doubt well intentioned, are actually un-Australian, uninformed and part of the problem not it’s solution.

  6. uuummmmmmmm i’m sorry lets go ahead and ignore the fact that this thread originally had nothing to do with race but an incredibly brave girl and focus on the idiots who need to make all the problems of the world a race issue.

    i would love to see where your pulling your statistics from so post a link if you can find one (ACA and today tonight don’t count as credible sources of information) but are we going to ignore the fact that white people rape people to? i know for a fact i’m sure glad i wasn’t an alter boy.

    also if we are going to talk statistics i’m going to guess that at least her boyfriend or the scumbag who raped her where white (mixed race couples only make up about %4 of relationships in the states) so if you do want to try draw the long bow and say all Muslims are hear to rape our women maybe you choose the wrong thread to comment on better luck next time.

    o and TAB or mind made up could you post any more info on this girls story i think shes amazingly strong to do what she’s doing

  7. My rapist was white…. my other attempted rapists were white. Footballers from ‘good’ families, university students, pillars of the community types. But because I was drunk and one of them was my boyfriend at the time I must have been asking for it, right? The fact that these animals constantly have every excuse under law for their behaviour and my name would be dragged through the mud in their defence sickens me.

    Oh and it bears repeating: all of them were WHITE.

    • Victim character witnesses ought to be disallowable in rape cases in my view. There is no “mitigating factor” in rape that relates to the charactor of the victim.

    • Same in this case. So much for rapists being from “other ethnic/cultural groups”.

      Rapists are men (in the vast majority of cases). Their victims are women (in the vast majority of cases though rapes of males are under-reported) Rapists have an over-developed sense of entitlement, poor impulse control and poor anger management. They will use their superior strength and size as a weapon. Where they lack size and strength they will often subdue their intended victim with drink or drugs. The majority of rapists are known to the victim.

      • I certainly knew all of mine, had known the footballers my whole life, they were friends of my brothers and family. For my efforts at keeping them off me I was branded a ‘bitch lesbo’ and shunned. That didn’t surprise me, what did was that their wives and girlfriends went after me as well because I must have been leading their men astray.

        Go to any small, sport oriented town in Australia and I can guarantee you this sort of thing is happening all the time and there isn’t a hint of ‘ethnicity’ about it.

        • Have you seen this movie? It is well-done and depicts the type of incident you describe – except in this instance the victim has someone who can help her fight back.

          We will see an end to rape when enough rapists are humiliated in court (or killed or maimed by their intended victims) to make it not worth their while.

        • No I hadn’t even heard of it, I will have to see if I can get a copy somewhere.

          If only more people in rural/semi rural areas acknowledged the institutionalised misogyny of young males in sporting clubs instead of brushing it off as ‘boys will be boys’ we’d get somewhere as a society. Everyone is aware on some level what happens in these clubs (the elite level players have brought enough attention to it over the years) but it’s still brushed under the carpet. It’d be even better if our mates upthread would acknowledge the fact that anglo boys are out there in packs doing a lot worse to anglo women every weekend rather than so called ‘minorities.’ I take some blame for that, I never reported it and I’m positive a lot of other women haven’t either; the subsequent victimisation just isn’t worth it.
